Papa Joe Comments and Stories

There are so many things happening in sports today that I would love to hear Papa Joe comment about!


The end of BCS...What would Papa Joe Say?


I wonder what Papa Joe would have to say about his "beloved Buck-os" and "beloved Steelers" in 2013.

I was a caller back in the early 90s. I played on his softball team and went golfing a few times with him. He was a truly great guy who loved his fans and what he did. Hope your up there Joe looking down upon us with a smile.


I never called or e-mailed Papa Joe. I started listening during his Sport Entertainment Network days in Las Vegas. Like most good things it didn't last long. My local radio station changed formats. After that I listened whenever I could catch him on an out-of-town station when traveling. When he started streaming on the internet, I was finally able to somewhat regularly listen to Papa Joe again. I did get a glimpse of Papa Joe in person when he was broadcasting his show live at Binions. He was busy interviewing a guest and I had to leave to catch an airplane back home before I had a chance to talk to him. I miss the voice of reason in sports.


I know that Papa Joe hated instant replay in baseball and for that matter, in all sports. I still think we need more instant replay in sports to get it right. I still listened to him whenever I could.

I started listening to Papa Joe back in the 1990s when he was on the One On One Sports radio network.  I was immediately "hooked" the first "Bite Me" Wednesday I listened to.  I followed him over the years, usually online, as the monkeys were always pulling his show for one reason or another.  He was truly one of the very best.  I will always be grateful for him and his shows.

Papa, you're home now.  Enjoy!  Take Care & God Bless.


I just found out today (10/25/2012) that Papa Joe died.  I was shocked to find out that he had passed away last year!

I listened to him on SEN Network, One and One Network, and the Sporting News network.  I lived in Sacramento and Reno during that time period.  Got to listen to him a little bit in Sacramento and listen to him on a constant basis in Reno.  I thought the guy was excellent.  He always spoke the truth and he was fair to his callers.

Once he came to Reno to meet the fans.  My friend and I went to a sports bar where he was at.  I wish I would have shook his hand.  For some reason we didn't get a chance to talk to him.  I know I am late to the party, but it chokes me up that he is no longer with us.  He was a legend.


Joe and I used to work together as surveillance agents back in the 70s.  We got to be pretty good friends and racquetball partners.  He was always a bright spot in my day and a very good gin player too.  I was lucky enough to get to know him on an entirely different level and I can assure you that he was a truly great guy.  He is missed.

Papa Joe was a joy to listen to.  I love listening to the archives.  It is so good to hear his voice again.  God Bless You Papa.

Barney in Reno

I was a huge fan of Papa Joe, listening on my commute home every night around 8pm.  I called in a few times and was constantly ripping on the Detroit Lions...They still suck!  My favorite memory was a random call I made when Papa was discussing Mike Tyson boxing against a female on pay-per-view.  Papa asked me "Who would watch Tyson fight a woman?"  I immediately answered "A Detroit Lions fan!"  This seemed to stump him so he asked me to explain myself.  I replied, "Every week Detroit Lions fans tune in to watch a senseless beating...."  He got a big laugh out of that one.  He sent me a T-shirt from Fat Burger and an autographed picture which now hangs next to my autographed pictures of Joe Montana, Hershel Walker and Richard Petty.  Papa Joe was a one-of-a-kind and he IS missed!  Thank you Papa for all the smiles.   I'll never forget you.

I used to listen to Papa Joe on my long drive home after work.  My drive home each evening seemed much longer when he left Chicago for Las Vegas and I couldn't listen to him on the radio.  It's good to be able to hear him again.
